37 per cent of travellers would pay more to have child-free flights, according to a recent TripAdvisor survey.
A disruptive flight is the last thing most holidaymakers want and can dampen the spirits even before arriving at your destination. The statistics revealed that 22 per cent of the 2000 Britons questioned are most annoyed by youngsters kicking the backs of chairs whilst another 22 per cent cannot stand lack of parental discipline. A TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma Shaw, pointed out: "Any disturbance when flying is a frustration but it seems that unruly children are among the biggest frustrations for some passengers."
Despite the fact over a third of voyagers would splash out more on their flight to avoid children, results were divided when asked whether youths should be allowed seats in first-class or business-class. 34 per cent voted to ban children from top-priced seating areas, whilst 36 declared children should have the right to stay.
The question of child-free flights has been in the air since Malaysia Airlines said no to children on the upper deck of their A380 aeroplanes in April 2012. The company's decision was to appease passengers who complained about buying expensive tickets and subsequently being kept awake by crying infants during flights.
Aside from irritations from kids, travellers are bothered by fellow customers who thoughtlessly recline their chairs too far back. In this way, a Skyscanner illustrated that flyers are annoyed by seeing other passenger' 'builder's bum' under low slung trousers.
